Falco Hawkfish (Cirrhitichthys falco) CARE
The Falco Hawkfish, Cirrhitichthys falco, is also known as the Dwarf Hawkfish. These fish come from the Indo-Pacific region. They have a white head and body with orangish-brown irrecgular bands and spots on the body
Hawkfish are carnivores and require a diet rich in meaty foods, such as marine fish and crustacean flesh, clams, and other marine meaty foods and/or frozen carnivore foods.
Falco Hawkfish require an aquarium of 30 gallons or more with plenty of live rock for hiding and perching places. These fish are semi-aggressive and should not be kept with overly aggressive fish.
They are considered reef safe “with caution” because although they are safe with coral, they may be aggressive with some fish and invertebrates.
